Chuck & Andrea Lynde | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Chuck & Andrea Lynde

When Andrea’s father got to know his next-door neighbor in Atlanta, Georgia, in the 1960’s, he was intrigued to discover that the man believed that the Bible was actually true and relevant. That mental shift was the beginning of a heritage of treasuring God and His powerful Word, eventually leading Andrea’s family to join Wycliffe Bible Translators and move to the Philippines. Meanwhile, an ocean away, Chuck grew up in a family that supported missions and nourished in him a life-long desire to be involved.

God’s Word is why Chuck and Andrea Lynde serve the Lord on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, as missions coaches. After Chuck's career as an Army chaplain, they are now recruiting new missionaries from the 50th state and beyond. Chuck and Andrea hope to both increase awareness and to enlist more “go-ers” and “senders” from the large military population and local Christians in Hawaii. By God’s grace He will show them who He has already set apart for ministry as Wycliffe missionaries.

The Lyndes live in Kapolei, Hawaii, along with one of their five children and none of their four grandchildren.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This monthly budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
